Installation and setting 3.1.Connection computer and license plate recognition camera with 75Ωcoaxial cable at BNC port. 3.2. Connect DC12Vpower supply, if the upper casing is open,the indicator light is on 3.3. When the image appears in the monitor, adjust the focus and Iris to get clear image. Surveillance area: max. 5-8 meters wide. 3.4.Digital display: current traffic mode and its parameters. To select various traffic mode by Rocker Switch UP or DOWN. The indicator is ON for the selected traffic mode. Five traffic modes following: A1: normal mode A2: 30KM/H A3: 60KM/H A4: 90KM/H A5: 120KM/H Traffic mode A1: no shutter speeds and Highlight compression function. Traffic mode: A2, A3, A4, A5: highlight compression and electronic shutter speed functions are working at the same time. HLC intensity is adjustable by Rocker Switch Left or Right. Set its intensity at night (or daytime when necessary).It automatically shifts according to the setting value from daytime to night. HLC intensity：E1-E6. When the intensity comes to E6 at night, it is the upmost highlight compression, the image view is much darker. Be sure to set to a suitable intensity for best view license plates. Factory default: E2 in daytime, E6 at night. 3.5. Set shutter speeds according to vehicle’s speed. If there’s ghost image, choose a higher speed mode. If the vehicle is not moving at all, choose the shutter speed mode: A1 or A2. 3.6.When main auxiliary lights is too strong or too weak, set LED brightness value from 00 to 32 by K1 or K2. The bigger value, the brighter LED illuminator. But it has to be not too whitish license plates. Factory default: 00 in daytime. Adjustable. 20 at night. Adjustable. 3.7. AGC setting. Enhance clearer image of license plates. Digital display: C1--C5，when it comes to C5, it is clearest image, but darker image. 3.8. External trigger signal input: Input external switch signal. The camera will automatically take snapshot picture when there’s signal input. Snapshot images can be stored in TF card or FTP upload to designated computer. 3.9. Digital display: current traffic mode, HLC intensity, LED luminance value, AGC. Circle display them. Time interval: 5 seconds. Digital tube is off when finishing setting. It is on again when pressing any button for re-set 3.10. Connect PC or NVR via internet for live view or recording when finish setting. 3.11. Default IP:192.168.1.4, user name: :system, password: system Initialize TF card and set snapshot parameters when logging in System. 3.12.NVR access protocol：ONVIF, port：8080 IE port:6002 3.13 TF card storage, FTP upload and image capture setting 3.13.1. Log in camera’s system by IE browser. IP:192.168.1.4, user name: system, password: system IE port: 6002. 3.13.2 Log in system, for video recording, FTP set, “ Configuration - Record - Ftp Set - Submit - Save” .Step 1-6. Use an internal network IP address (same network with camera) as FTP server. If untick “Record the 2nd Stream”, video recording main stream. 3.13.3. Log in system, for snapshot image, capture setting, “ Configuration - Record - Capture Set - Submit - Save” Use an internal network IP address (same network with camera) as FTP server. Tick “Enable Second Stream”, snapshot image from second stream. Step 1-7. 5 types of capture handle: Store the snapshot images to TF card, or To the FTP server, or through alarm channel upload, or TF card and FTP upload, or TF card and upload alarm channel. To store images to TF card and FTP upload to a designated directory. Select it in down menu. 3.13.4 Log in system. AlarmIn setting, “Configuration - Alarm - Alarm Set -Submit -Save”. Step 1-8. For snapshot or Record or Alarm to the CMS. 3.13.5 Log in system, format TF card. “Configuration -System - Disk Set - Format ”. Step 1-4. 3.13.6 Log in system. “Configuration - System - Advanced set - Restore “, restore camera if it is the 1st time setting. Step 1-3. 3.13.7 Then, the camera will capture image and store images when it is connected with inductive loops, etc. It says “Signal Alarm...” when live view. 3.13.8 Snapshot images by Video Motion Detection. It is for test purpose. Please be noted that snapshot by Motion Detection is much less accurate than by inductive loops, radar,etc. external trigger because of poor illumination at night. Log in System. “ Live View - VMD - Alarming Schedule - Linkage Action - ClearZone- Re-size VMD area - Setup - Save “ . Step 1-6. ( Alarming Schedule: Copy to “ Everyday” and Copy. ) Threshold: less value, more sensitive. After finish VMD setting, it shows “Motion Alarm...” when the car is passing through the virtual square area. When live viewing, it says “ Motion Alarm...” when the car is passing through. 3.13.9 If you prefer MJPEG as second video stream, setting from “ Live view - Stream - Stream Type - Second video stream setting- Setup - Save” . Step 1-6 Remarks: When sub video stream is MJPEG, can’t set higher frame rate of real time view. The camera can’t proceed high stream. It will restore from time to time because of high stream. 3.13.10 There are various video stream type (main stream and sub stream) to meet customer’s requirement. “Live View - Stream - Stream Type - Setup - Save “. 3.13.11 To apply NTSC TV system, setting from “ Live view - Device - Format Type - Setup - Save” . Step 1-5 3.13.12 Manual recording, “Live View”, Press recording icon to start and stop. Find recording at D:/Record/Video on your computer. It is for test purpose. 3.13.13 Manual snapshot images, “ Live view” Press image icon to start capture . Find images at D:/Record/Image on your computer . It is for test purpose. 4．problem and solution If there is any problem in the camera, please try to solve it as below.. problem solution 1. If too wide surveillance area. 2. Well focus License plate image is not 3. LED illuminator has enough luminance. clear enough or obscure 4. Suitable HLC intensity. 5. Set suitable shutter speed for fast vehicle speed. 1. Set suitable shutter speed Tailing image 2. NVR proceed too slowly. Replace an advanced NVR. etc. 1 HLC intensity, AGC value, LED brightness value is on best match. Image whitish. 2. WDR function ON in the daytime. 1. Network is connected. No network 2. Network protocol is correct. 5. Warranty: one year from factory shipment.
